DL 97 Flight Delayed: Compensation

If your flight DL 97 Paris to Detroit was delayed, you may be entitled to compensation for a flight delay, depending on the circumstances. Regulation EC 261/2004 is a European Union law that gives passengers the right to compensation for flight delay inconvenience and lost time.

The law does not provide compensation for minor delays less than 3 hours. So to be entitled to make a valid compensation claim, your flight DL 97 must arrive in Detroit at least 3 hours late. The distance between Paris and Detroit is the main determining factor for compensation calculation for your flight DL 97.

Tip: Detroit is not your final destination, the amount of compensation must be calculated based on the distance between Detroit and your ultimate final destination if both flights are booked under the same reservation.

Our technology allows you to check your eligibility for flight DL 97 compensation and determine the proper amount of compensation in real time due from Delta Air Lines. Make sure you don't miss out on your compensation claim, use our free flight checker.

Linda from United States (USA) (Delta Air Lines DL 97 Flight delay)
May 10, 2022, 4:37 pm

My spouse and I were on DL0097 on May 3, 2022. She is disabled (can walk with assistance and needs a wheelchair at airports). The extended delay was physically difficult for her, particularly in her back. We arrived at DTW and deplaned five hours after our scheduled 1300h arrival. The Delta representatives told us that the initial delay was for 1.5 hours, then that was extended. It was only after all passengers were on board, prior to taxiing, that everyone was informed (by the purser?) that no luggage was loaded on the plane because there had been a cargo latch issue. We were told that while a repair had been made that the EU regulations differed from the FAA regulations and that it was "paperwork" that had delayed the flight. We left CDG without luggage. We were informed, while on board, that the luggage would be sent to our final destinations either that evening or the following day, May 4, 2022. Our luggage arrived at our home in East Lansing, Mich. literally 48 hours later. We were anxious as I was scheduled to receive my PhD at a Michigan State University commencement the following day and some of the clothes I planned to wear were in the luggage. It was a clear inconvenience - not only the anxiety, but now receiving any information about scheduled luggage drop off. I tried multiple times to access the Delta delayed luggage website to no avail. Also, the customer service email was not answered for two days. I have documentation of both.
